Luck is with us this port call in Bremerhaven Germany. The weather is gorgeous, 25c every day and the grass is green. A very different place since the last time I was here in December. Also we were delayed due to the German Good Friday holiday and the Belgian observance of Easter Monday so instead of paying double the rates for labor the powers that be have allowed us to sit idle for two days so it's been a great weekend of bike riding and discovering yet more peculiar and suprising aspects of this rather unique North Sea sea port.
Above is the rhinocerous I met at the circus which was being erected in one of the cities parks. 3 euro and you could just walk around, right up to the elephants and camels and pet them and get probed by thier snouts. Wonders never cease when one travels.
